Big Online Tournaments Approaching

Online Tournaments, 2006-01-26, by TwoGun

It is typical for an online poker room to host a large poker tournament on the last Sunday of each month. This Sunday, Empire Poker, Poker Stars, and Party Poker are featuring unique tournaments with large buy-ins.

Empire Poker is hosting a $250+$20 tournament at 9 pm EST this Sunday. The tournament has a guaranteed prize pool of $200,000. Re-buys and add-ons are allowed in this tournament. This means 800 buy-ins (including rebuys/add-ons) are required to fill the prize pool. If there are less than 800 buy-ins, which may likely happen for this tournament, Empire Poker will have to supplement the prize pool up to the $200k guarantee that has been made.

PokerStars typically features a very popular $215 buy-in Sunday tournament at 4:30 pm EST. But for this coming Sunday, a $500+$30 buy-in $700,000 guaranteed tournament will be played instead. Due to the popularity of Poker Stars, this tournament is unlikely to result in an overlay and could possibly draw a prize pool over one million dollars.

Also at 4:30 pm EST, Party Poker is offering a $350+$28 buy-in $750,000 guaranteed tournament. This tournament has the potential to reach a prize pool of one million dollars as well.
